Keep in mind that we've been able to do F-13 builds since 8/28 of 2009,
and while they weren't mirrored it was possible to consume these builds
and develop software against them.

Fedora currently aims to have a May1 / Oct 31 release set, and thus
those are the target areas we use when setting up schedules for the
associated releases.  We then adjust for various factors, such as other
distro release dates and upstream release dates, but for better or
worse, we are currently a time based release with predictable release

If people want this to change, it really needs to happen at a FESCo or
Board level.  Releng is just creating the schedules with the current
constraints we have to work with.
